I don’t ever want this election to end:
Colin Powell has his dancing shoes on, fueling speculation that he’s gearing up to do the Obama Two-Step.
The normally staid former U.S. secretary of state and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff performed an impromptu hip-hop dance alongside well-known rap stars Tuesday following a speech at a festival in London celebrating African-American music and fashion.
His address at the “Africa Rising” celebration inside London’s Royal Albert Hall fueled speculation that an endorsement of Barack Obama is imminent.
Powell — who has yet to back a candidate — told the audience: “I stand before you as an African-American. Many people have said to me you became secretary of state of the USA, is it still necessary to say that you are an African American or that you are black? And I say yes, so that we can remind our children.”
“It took a lot of people struggling to bring me to this point in history,” Powell told the audience. “I didn’t just drop out of the sky. People came from my continent in chains.”
Why did this “fuel speculation” that Powell is about to endorse Obama? All I see here is that Powell danced to hip-hop and talked about his African heritage.
In other words, Fox is saying that he’s going to vote for Obama because he’s a black guy hanging out with black people and doing black things.
This election is awesome.
